MCGILL—The Schellraiser Music Festival drew hundreds to the tiny town of McGill this past weekend, showcasing dozens of regional and international bands. Schellraiser is now in its third year and has become “the biggest event this side of Fallon,” according to White Pine County’s tourism folks.

The acts came from as far as the UK (Miki Berenyi Trio) and Denmark (The Raveonettes) but featured several West Coast bands covering diverse genres from gospel to punk. This Is Reno helped to sponsor the event since many attendees trek across the Silver State from Reno.
